    This is where we're headed, if we aren't there already. Those are mind boggling figures. One out of six homes has no one that even works! :eek:



    Britain's benefits generation: State handouts now a 'way of life for six million'

    Six million Britons are living in homes where no one has a job and "benefits are a way of life", a report by MPs revealed yesterday. And they cost the taxpayer nearly £13billion a year in state handouts.

    This army of families on benefit - nearly one in six of all households in the country - has been untouched by a decade of Labour's attempts to get them into work, said the Public Accounts Committee.

    Four out of five of these homes have no one who is even looking for a job.

    ..................

    Yesterday's report said there are three million homes where no one works, nearly one in six of all households. They include 4.3million adults, excluding pensioners, and nearly 1.8million children.

    They cost £12.7billion a year in benefits. Six out of ten workless families are concentrated in just 40 deprived districts of the country, it added.

    America should watch closely to what is going on in Britian to prevent the same thing from happening here, Britian is a good example of the path that Far Out Looney Liberalism Will Lead you Down.

    The Muslims can see what Britian is doing and they are patienly waiting and slowly "moving in".

    If and when Islam should come to power in Britian then you will see some "Real Law And Order".
